Question about GE Profile Performance 25.2 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFS25PPBBS

Water / hissing noice

Hello, Our freezer all of a sudden is making a hissing noise. The noise is from water dripping down the inside (by ice maker) and falling on what appears to be wiring just behind the drain hole. The drain hole is not plugged, but the wayer is hitting the wires which are warn causing it to sound like putting meat on a hot grill. I turned off the ise maker and the water stopped dripping along with the noise.

Any thoughts as to what is happening?

Thanks.........Gary

Sounds like the water-supply fitting/connection going into the icemaker is leaking. It needs to be removed and fitting/hose tightened/repaired/etc.

My subzero 650 ice maker drips water w/o making ice. Makes a mess with ice build up. I had to turn off water lined to stop the ice maker from dripping. Turning off the ice maker switch did not stop the ice...


Good day,
No, a new water valve should solve that problem. The diaphram in the valve is not completely closing.
Very common problem.

Thank you for using FixYa

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

When the ice maker start to rotate there is very loud noise


Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises

Freezer is leaking and also makea buzzing noice


Hissing and popping is normal, it is the defrost heater.
Check that the freezer is level
Check the drain pan
Check the condenser fan
Check the evaporator fan
Inspect the compressor mounts


Water on floor outside of freezer?

* Check the drain pan
* If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve

Water inside the freezer?

* Check for a clogged drain tube
* If you have an ice-maker, check freezer and ice-maker for level

Under counter ice maker water pickup problem


Most likely your plastic curtain is not keeping the water in the sump area. ( I'm assuming it makes round cubes)? Look under the sump for any dripping if its a pretty steady drip replace your water curtain and the holder that's with it.

If you have a cutting grid type ice machine this is all together different and I need to tell you separately about that.

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.


the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.

Ice maker freezing up


The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
